Here are the links you will need:
v3 KIT PRE-ORDERS ARE CLOSED
PCB Kit from Helder - Includes the main PCB, Charging PCB, Screen PCB, screen, headphone jack (optional to put on), left and right bumper PCB, speaker, ribbon cable, and connector for the battery charging PCB to the main PCB. PRE-ORDERS END ON JANUARY 31!
2200mAh custom battery from Helder (US) | (UK) - This is a custom battery made for the Minty Pi v3.
3D Printed parts kit from Wermy - This includes everything you need for putting together the 3D printed parts. This includes the 3D printed parts, screws, and the magnet.
Custom silicone buttons from Wermy - These are custom injection molded silicone buttons made for the Minty Pi. They will be worth the money.
The Famicon buttons are back in stock!
Now for the FaQ portion:
Does it have L and R buttons?
What will I need to buy?
-Raspberry Pi Zero (W is recommended) WITHOUT HEADERS
-A Micro SD card. 8GB or greater is recommended. You don't need to go overkill on the size. I believe 16GB will suffice for most people and 32Gb for those that want every game they will never play.
-A tin. Altoids or similar sized tin.
-2 short pieces of wire for the speaker. 30 gauge silicone coated is recommended.
-A battery if you are not buying one from Helder. 4 pin cell phone battery like one for the S4 Mini. Maximum dimensions should be 51mm x 58mm x 5mm. Helder states that the Evo 3D batteries will also work. MintyJam has also found that the Huawei CS-HUY300XL should also be a feasible option as well.
Will the STLs be released for the 3D printed parts?
Yes! They will be released close to when the official build video is posted. I will link them here when posted.
What about the extra parts for the 3D printed parts like the screws and magnet? (Because I print my own!)
Wermy has stated on the Discord server that the screws and magnet will be available separately on the website.
You will need the following screws if you are sourcing them yourselves:
-3x M2 3mm
-2x M2 4mm
-4x M2 7mm
I will try to get with Wermy to get exact size for the magnet and change this if/when I find out.
What else will I need?
A soldering iron and solder (63sn/37pb or close to w/ flux). Both can be obtained for cheap. If you have never soldered before or it has been a while, it's recommended to get a practice board from OshPark to practice on before diving in to the real thing. (top board and bottom board. You will need both.)
A multimeter w/ continuity checker is also strongly recommended but not required. These can also be obtained cheaply.
Here is a list of my recommended soldering irons, solder, and multimeters.
The silicone buttons I want are sold out! When are more coming?

I can't give any ETA on buttons being remade so just take what is available now but I know now what are the most wanted so I will order more of those in the future.
These are the only questions I have seen thus far. I will update this post as I see more. Feel free to post in here with your questions!
